Charming Beach Cottage Overlooking Moonlight Beach

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 12, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 12 Sleeps

VERY reasonably priced at $2550 a week for summer and $1500/week or $4000/month for off peak season! Please see guest comments at the very bottom and check availability online.

Renovated, cheerful and bright beach cottage only a few steps to the fabulous Moonlight Beach. Relax with a drink or have a BBQ on the beautiful deck overlooking the sand and surf of Moonlight Beach. The coffee maker, toaster and a full kitchen make it easy to whip up breakfast in the ocean view dining or sun room. Grab the beach chairs, beach towels and boogie boards that are provided and walk across the street to the beach. Come back to rinse off in the hot water outdoor shower and throw your beach gear in the outdoor shed. Sit back in the living room with a cozy fire in the wood fireplace and check out the surfers, play a board game or watch your favorite TV show or DVD. Walk to the many restaurants, bars, cafes and the movie theatre nearby. Get some work done on your laptop using the free Wi-Fi service if you can tear yourself away from the beach! It's hard to imagine a more perfect vacation!

A few minute walk to the beautiful Moonlight Beach, voted best family, singles and body surfing beach in San Diego and Cottonwood Creek Park voted the best park! You will be a 10 min drive to Legoland and close to many San Diego attractions such as the world famous San Diego Zoo, Seaworld, Del mar beach and other fine San Diego beaches. This beach house is walking distance to the train station, which means you can forgo a car completely while vacationing here. In addition to San Diego's many tourist attractions in downtown or Old Town, the Coaster also stops at the Solana Beach train station where you can take a free shuttle to San Diego County Fair or Del Mar Racetrack during the racing season.

This unique house is always maintained well. The house is around 1600 sf. One bedroom with a Queen bed, two baths, the living area with a convertible bed, kitchen, dining room, a charming sunroom and a huge deck are upstairs. Two more bedrooms, one with two bunk beds and one with a full bed, one bath and the den (daybed) are downstairs. This is not a condo like many other beach rentals. You have a full house with an ocean view yard that includes a firepit for roasting marshmallows at night! The kids also love our house. They get bunk beds, kid size table, books, dvds and games as well as a high chair, pack'n'play and baby gate for the stairs!

We have priced this property very competitively, so don't miss out and be ready to have an unforgettable time at our cottage by the sea.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just two blocks away from the Pacific and always in view of the ocean and sunsets, this is the a perfect beach vacation. The house is not for glitz seekers, but for those who want to relax and center their Encinitas time on family and beach. Once you're settled in, even in car crazy California, you can park the car and walk everywhere from the grocery to the library to restaurants to the train. One caveat--there are stairs so it's not disabled-friendly. The house is very well suited to families and we have enjoyed it for three winters with our extended family. The owners instantly respond to every need and it's been a pleasure to rent from them.

A Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time this summer. The cottage was bright, inviting, and cozy without feeling crowded, and though we walked and biked all over Encinitas and took several day trips, we spent most of our time enjoying the view of Moonlight Beach from the deck of the house and having friends and family meet us there for snacks before setting out to the beach, only a short walk away. The large driveway, three bathrooms, and portable fans were especially helpful and appreciated, and the large children's room downstairs gave the kids plenty of space to roam while providing a quiet space for them to rest at the end of each busy day. The owner and property manager were easily accessible, helpful, and warm, and we loved our stay so much that we have already reserved a spot for summer 2015!

Positive Vibe and Happiness

  • 5 of 5
Our whole family had such a lovely time at your beautiful beach house. I am so grateful that we got to share the happiness of this home, and hopefully add some of our own. I understand why everyone gets such a positive vibe from this home. It's brimming with wonderful memories! The sands, sights and smells are perfect. Each of us loved every second spent at Moonlight & Encinitas. We hope to be back someday soon.

This was my first time to San Diego and it was a family trip. There were 11 of us and it was so wonderful! The house was everything we expected and had everything we needed. Being so close to the beach was amazing! Mahsa thank you for everything!

CA Paradise

  • 4 of 5
Great house for families! Four adults and two young children and it worked perfectly! Loved the views, the childrens play park right at Moonlight Beach, the lawn out front (which my granddaughter referred to as the Secret Garden), the huge porch, where we spent much of our time, the sunroom which was perfect for morning coffee time and listening to the waves. House is set up well with baby gate, games, toys, ukulele (not something you would normally find in a rental), super comfortable beds, three bathrooms, a master suite upstairs and two bedrooms and a bath downstairs made it perfect for us. We caught the tail end of a heat wave (90's) and realized it does not have air conditioning but thankfully they had fans and the ocean breeze came through for us! Loved the beachy decor, comfortable places to sit and read and location. Hope to return next year!
